There are several ways to do that: the most basic is to add a count to your loop:
C#
int showCount = 10;
foreach (string f in Directory.GetFiles(directory))
{
      Console.WriteLine(lvlSeperator + Path.GetFileName(f));
      if (--showCount <= 0) break;
}
A better way is to use the array as an Enumerable and only process ten items:
C#
foreach (string f in Directory.GetFiles(directory).Take(10))
{
      Console.WriteLine(lvlSeperator + Path.GetFileName(f));
}
But ... the order in which Directory.GetFiles "delivers" files is not defined by the method definition:
The order of the returned file names is not guaranteed; use the Sort method if a specific sort order is required.
So you need first decide what are "the first ten" and sort them according to that decision: name order? Create date? Modification date? Size? Ascending or descending?
We can't make that decision for you: we don't know your app!

You should also be aware that Directory.GetFiles has a number of overloads, one of which allows you to return all files in all subdirectories in a single call: Directory.GetFiles Method Overload 3[^] which may improve your app performance with large directory structures.
